Janina Ramirez has her work cut out sustaining our interest for the final leg of the story. Covering 1415 to 1453, she charts Henry V’s progress across France, seizing provinces and eventually the capital, before his death from dysentery at 35. Pious young heir Henry VI would be happier building his chapel at King’s College, Cambridge.

Ramirez rootles through 600-year-old contracts, pores over stained glass and, just as the story really flags, the crafty Dauphin produces his secret weapon, a figurehead sent by God – Joan of Arc.


Dr Janina Ramirez continues her examination of the lengthy conflict in the 14th and 15th centuries by focusing on Henry V's attempts to secure the crown of France for his heirs by conquering the entire country. She also explores the unlikely role played by Joan of Arc, a young peasant, in its resistance. Last in the series.
